You, lovely reader, are getting married at the most amazing time – the opportunities for hiring a unique venue are endless. So many places – old theatres, cinemas, museums; buildings filled with history and character – are opening their doors to weddings. As a wedding blogger I love discovering new places to get hitched, and when I can share the experience with all of you lovely lot it makes me so happy! Today we join beautiful bride Najma and her gorgeous groom Jeff as they tie the knot at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. It’s probably the only wedding venue with a touring dinosaur… or is it?! Dippy’s making his way around the UK until 2020, dinosaur fans!

As fascinating as dinosaurs are, I’m captivated by the beautiful details of Jeff and Najma’s day – the dress is just stunning! All day long these two are smiling, and the atmosphere is full of love and happiness. The showcase pieces are there too: the cake is divine; bridesmaids look gorgeous and the florals are exquisite. Oh, and Najma’s sparkling evening dress is so perfect for the dance floor, don’t you think?

When I first started out as a wedding calligrapher I illustrated Hampden House by hand for a bride and groom’s wedding table plan! When I saw it in Omair and Sarah’s wedding pictures today I knew it instantly: a glorious venue, unique and instantly recognisable… and perfect for this loveliest of couples! I love everything about their day (I’d love to see pics from their Asian wedding on the Sunday too, but today we’re focusing on the traditional English celebration) – the elegant styling, vibrant florals and oodles of romance from beginning to end. It’s all just so magical!

We have different religions, backgrounds, heritages and we wanted to represent all of that. But most importantly represent our relationship so celebrating bringing all these elements together which we decided to do over a weekend rather than in one day. We had two main events so most things were duplicated; two venues, two sets of outfits, two cakes, two caterers. But we didn’t want to simply repeat one day so we had different traditions incorporated over the weekend so there was always something new.

Gorgeous bride Nazma told me her wedding to David was a multicultural fusion of love, family, friendship & everlasting memories. And you know what? I think this is one of the loveliest days I’ve had the pleasure of featuring on the English Wedding Blog! The colours, elegance and character of the day are stunning – this is a wedding to warm your soul and make you smile out loud. Enjoy – the English Wedding Blog is BEAUTIFUL today!

Fusion wedding at Warwick House Rob & Sarah Gillespie (24)

Warwick House is a dedicated wedding venue. The stunning layout meant that nothing really needs adding other than personal touches. The neutral colours meant that any colour theme can be incorporated at the venue without looking out of place.

We made the stationery ourselves – it was a combination of a labour of love and stress! Making wedding stationery can be a timely and patient process so I’d recommend only doing it if you’ve got the time and help from some crafty minded friends!

Glenn and Pen celebrated their wedding over a full weekend, with a wonderfully chic ceremony on the Saturday and a colourful, traditional, vibrant party at Bradbourne House on the Sunday. I LOVE it all – from the fleet of vintage cars (how cool?!) to the henna tattoos, paisley patterns and Pen’s stunning dresses. I know you will too! Pen’s advice for other couples, and supplier recommendations, are an unmissable read: do take some time to read her interview at the end of today’s feature.

Pen and Glenn’s two celebrations were fabulously different, but both absolutely stunning. Pen says their English wedding was full of surprises for guests, a magical, emotional, fairytale day. To compliment the venue which was within a Norman church set amongst the beautiful Kent countryside they opted for a rather vintage style, a convoy of classic cars and their owners arranged as carriages for guests and the wedding party – and they wore non traditional wedding outfits.

I was so excited when I saw all the lovely images from Madeleine and George’s beautiful wedding – they married on the cusp of spring, and used wild cherry blossom as a key floral theme with darker reds and woodland shades to style their day. Their Vietnamese-English fusion wedding brings a lovely splash of colour with all the fabulous reds, and the portraits of the bride and groom are stunning, as is St Audries Park. You’ll love it!

“We used pale pink cherry blossom, rich red vanda orchids for a slightly oriental feel and blousy peony like, pale pink ranunculus, along with blue green foliages such as eucalyptus, ice plant. I wanted the bouquet to be natural looking, seasonal and trailing. A hand tied bouquet of flowers with an undulating, flowing and natural outline.

All the flowers in the bride and civil ceremony bridesmaid bouquets, buttonholes, corsages for the tea ceremony bridesmaids and the decorations for the shrine tables, ceremony tables and centrepieces for the wedding breakfast tables used cherry blossom twigs which helped to give a winter into spring feel and the buttonholes and corsages picked up the ruby red, dusky pink colours of the morning ceremony.
